Problems with Initial Build Instructions


Couple of issues with the initial build instructions:
  1. It does not mentions that you need ILMerge:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ILMerge\
  2. I grabbed the most recent version of NUnit (2.2.8) and I am not 100% sure if this would be an issue with 2.2.7 but the file that we need is in the bin directory. Seems that this should be mentioned in the instructions because I just assumed it was the root directory so in the targets file I put:
    C:\Program Files\NUnit-Net-2.0 2.2.8\
    instead of:
    C:\Program Files\NUnit-Net-2.0 2.2.8\bin\
    Easy fix, but seems like it should be in the directions so people can get it correct out of the gate.
    NOTE - I have attached the build logs from the 2 failures.

Hi z_kramer,

Thanks for reporting these. I've updated the homepage Wiki to include the link to the ILMerge download location and the Building MSE to mention both the ILMerge and the fact that you need to add the bin folder to the Nunit path.

I'm going to close this bug, since there isn't a "resolved" state. Feel free to reopen if there's anything else missing or to create a new issue if there are any other gotchas in the documentation / wiki.

We haven't had a chance yet to try out NUnit 2.2.8. How has the experience been?

Updated both the Wiki Homepage and the Building MSE instructions to include ILMerge and a notice about including the bin folder for the NUnit exe location.
